A test involving kernel threads should live in kernel/, even though the
functionality being tested is in the HAL. If you put it in hal/common you'd
still have to make it conditional on CYGPKG_KERNEL anyway.

Also, while not an absolute requirement, if you could avoid using libm
functions that would be good so the test can still run if libm is disabled.
